I just got off the phone with Georgia Mountain Fairground. The lady said they do have a contract for the BIBR 2021 event. I was able to make a reservation for a campsite in Area 2. It was the last site available in Area 2.

I believe there are still available spots in area 1. I think that Greg reserved two spots for our BritBike crowd.

The 2021 British in the Blue Ridge is on June 25 & 26.

This will be the 36th BIBR - Last year was "unplugged" meaning that it was not a full event, but attended by about 50 enthusiasts.

This year will be a full event with a Mountain Ride and Hot Dog Supper on Firday June 25, and a Poker Run and Bike Show on Saturday June 26.

Over 20 plaques will be awarded to winners of the Bike show. We typically have 85+ vintage bikes participate.

There will be a drawing for "full event participants" for a 1969 Triumph Bonneville.

Thanks,
Wish I'd known about the modified event last year. This is always the highlight of my Summer, has been since 1986.

Hey guys,
I'm heading up to BIBR from New Orleans for the first time this year. Are there any stops on the Mobil, Montgomery, Atlanta route that you'd recommend? Also, what time does this get going on Friday? Just looking for general info. Thanks.

My only recommendation would be to avoid Atlanta like the plague. There is a good reason they film the Walking Dead there!

We are camping across the road from the fairgrounds. Look for a BMW with sidecar, a 250 BSA, a Maroon trident, etc. Stop in and say hello.

Thank Hugh.
Avoiding ATL seems like SOLID advice. I'm riding up on a Harley street glide; I'll make sure to stop by.

They film there because there's an IATSE local east of town. In the Heat of the Night TV show was also shot out there.
As for avoiding Atlanta, your best bet is to take I-285 around the western side and I-75 north to I-575 up to Elijay. From there US 76 is a straight shot to Hiawassee. The park is on the left before you get into town, we'll be camping on the right side of the road.

You could change the part where it’s all on this side. Have your own event. You’ve been to enough of them to have a good idea of what works and what doesn’t.

Just sayin

Gordon

BIBR British in the Blue Ridge had been going on for decades. Put on by GABMA
(did I get that right?) a Brit Bike club in Atlanta.

I have to be completely honest. I love attending but it’s not much more than a camp out. They have some field games, bike show and a very small swap. For me it’s a wonderful ride to the event and some of my favorite people are there.

Gordon, the only ones I,ve been to all the trmr and mid o

Not many brit riders out here, our roads leave a bit to be desired. maybe if I ever get moved to ark.

But back to the original question, if I have to go east, should I stop by? what is it? where do I stay????/??

You forgot the OSMR…….so as far as I know you’ve attended every event that was started through bb.com.

How many times have I heard you say “ It’s not about the ride”??????

You have Baxter’s to visit and I for one have never spent any time in Ned

To answer your questions since you’re obviously not taking the bait.

The fairgrounds in Hiawassee Georgia. We camp on site but there are lots of motels in the area. It’s kinda a resort/vacation type area surrounding a big beautiful lake.

Let Google do your research……..

Some of the same roads just starting on the other side of the lake we had at the Reunion Camp 2020. Same ride leaders.

Rich, It isn't about the gathering so much, as about hanging with friends. Beautiful roads everywhere. And you can always stay with me.
I can either camp, or just ride back and forth. It's only 40 miles. Unless you take the scenic route!
Breakfast in town, lunch at TWO, BBQ dinner just up the road. Campfires, libations, lots of British bikes. What more could you want?

It used to be a bigger deal before they kicked us out of Bald Mountain campground. Much better swap meet.
We're all getting older, it's tough to find anyone up after 10 to party with.

I agree 100% David.......much different feel all around. The logistics at the fairground just takes the wind out of me. BUT like Marlin (aka HughdeMann) says, its the hanging out with friends and the area is beautiful. The fairgrounds aren't really bad......it's just that Bald Mountain fit the event so much better. Hats off to the club for keeping it going......it's still a good time with great people.

Gordon......be there or be square.
